All these with some more questions haunt in our mind from which we suffer a lot and for girls, it's a huge problem that what we will wear. Everyone before stepping out for traveling stands in front of his cupboard and start staring dresses. You hear or see a Facebook post where your friends mention you and say only three days left.
